Oh yeah. Have you ever gotten that?

Depending on how it's said, it can be flattering.

it does make me a little sad. i know it's meant in a good way, but it still reminds me that my sexuality is a disappointment to many people who love me very much, and no less for it.

Why is it that gays, men and women, get more 'press' for being randy than straight people? eg every time I open up gay literature at a bookstore, it's poems (albeit academic) about sensuality, touch, sex etc.

Another eg is that gay tv shows almost always have sex in them and more sexual innuendos than other shows.

you think "will and grace" has more sex in it than "friends" or "desperate housewives"?

anyway, i've had my "ask the homo" thread, i'll defer to the lesbian ...

sorry.

You've had over a 100 years of mainstream literature, 50 years of TV etc of straight sexual inuendo. You are so use to it that you don't even see it anymore, it's been there for so long. Our sex is still taboo, so our inuendo is still shocking therefore memorabe.

When people watch 'Friends' they don't say straight people are like this, because straight people have all the shows. So there are what maybe 2 shows on network TV that have fultime gay members? Therefore gay people are judged by those few characters.

It's ridiculous, step back next time and take it in context.

Just the intelligent answer I was looking for. I know it is ridiculous, and I know that people judge gays based on what they see on the telly. Another eg is when I am watching a program made by gays for gays, it almost always has a segment on (1) safe sex or (2) gay bars and where to hang out. I just wonder why. Btw, I was thinking more of Queer as Folk rather than Will And Grace.

I was thinking more mainstream media. But if you're going to talk about cable then you only have to look as far as Sex in the City to do a comparison.

I have a distant cousin on my mom's side. But to be honest I don't even know if he's a 4th 5th or 6th. We're all pretty close and just call each other cousins.

hey, i agree about QAF. while i enjoy it, both for the ultra-melodrama and the soft core gay sex, i do think it's a bit over-the-top and presents gay life in unrealistic terms. you know, like TV shows always do.

as unrealistic to being gay as "sex in the city" (which i also love) is to being single and female in new york.

i think part of hte point of QAF was to give gay people something akin to the soft core you can find on premium cable. that said, my life is certainly nothing like that, and if you read the fine print at the end of the show, it says somethign to the effect of "QAF is a celebration of the lives of a particular group of gay people, it is not intended to be an accurate representation of the entire homosexual population."

The rainbow stickers, the double-padlocks on your door and the continual pajama parties with different women gave me a hint!!!

So, are gay, lesbian, bi folk hornier than the straight folk?

Just curious 'cause I'm a "closet" bi and was just wondering. I say I'm a "closet" bi because my extended family doesn't have a clue (far as I know). My hubby knows and I want to add that I am strictly monogamous in thought and action. It's a bit complicated but, it's worth it! I love him all too much!!! And, I want to be there for him 100%.
